I tend to misanalyze enclosure as being the same word as sharp pointy
thing, i.e., "pin", while writing instrument is "pen". Altho they are
perfectly homophonous in my dialect, I still think of those as two
words, but with that erroneous assignment of "enclosure".
Incidentally, I also don't rhyme "Remember" and "December". (Re)member
is one of the very small number of words in my dialect with pre-nasal
/E/. Those words are /ri'mEmbr/ and /di'sImbr/. I first noticed that
when I saw the phrase "A December to remember" and realized that it was
probably meant as a rhyme, but didn't rhyme for me.
